Windows 10 Desktop App - right click not working

Hey All,


Until the last day or so, the windows 10 app has been performing greatly.


Now all right-click functions have stopped..   which is slightly annoying.


Anyone else having this issue?




6 answers

I am having the same issue. Started happening last week Friday. Very annoying as I used that function a lot for cut and paste. Currently using CTRL v and CTRL c but prefer to use the right click.

I created a support account just to report the same problem! It's really annoying - is there a way to report it?

I contacted their support as well.. and I was asked to send through the logs from the app so that they can take a look.

The biggest issue for me is that I can not link to specific comments in tasks..

Hopefully soon it be updated.

Hey everyone,

Thanks for the reports on this. Our team did find a bug that caused the desktop apps to lose that functionality recently, and we're currently working on a fix.

I don't have an ETA to provide at this time, but we'll get this resolved as soon as possible.

Thanks for your patience in the meantime!

Hey there,

I can report that the issue is fixed and also some other functionality is now working as well.

Thanks for the quick turnaround.

Mine still isn't working. I've closed down the app and re-opened. Is there anything else I need to do?

I can't remember what right click functionality was like before but you do get copy, cut, paste options. You may need to restart your computer in order for it to work.

Hey @Mark Hunter can you check if there is an update available for the desktop app?


You may want to try a reinstall as well, which you can find instructions for here:


Let me know if that helps!

I've reinstalled and right click is working now, thanks. But now spellcheck isn't working even though it's selected. I spelled a few words incorrectly and got no red squiggle.


Any ideas?

I'm glad to hear a reinstall fixed that functionality, but I'm not seeing the same issue with spell check on my end.

Could you reach out to us at with a screenshot so we can take a closer look please?


Hi Garrett, 

Spellcheck is not working for me either.

Thanks. I've sent an email.
